WHAT IS IT?
DY140 is a classic mohair loop yarn spun from 80% mohair, 10% wool and 10% nylon. It’s soft, textured and slightly lustrous and perfect to dye.
WHAT'S IT FOR?
All our undyed yarns can be dyed with hot or cold water dyes using tools and equipment you would have in your kitchen. Mohair needs to be dyed with hot water or acid dyes and can also be dyed with natural dyes – into solid or unique space-dyed colourways.
The loop will add character to all types of projects whether knitted or crocheted, and adds beautiful texture to tassels and braids. DY140 is used by textile artists to create beautiful warps in tapestry weaving projects and can be used in all types of weaving work.
Also excellent to re-create hair or fur when making dolls and animal figures, Santa’s beards and sheep and can be couched into embroideries for lovely loopy details.
